Guest We are looking for a very simple handheld bar code reader with a digital display built in. This is only for QA verification of labels. It does not need to be connected to any other device nor to a MRP/ERP system. Cost is a factor.

If your only concern is to make sure a code is readable and see what data is encoded I would suggest the Honeywell SP5500. This device is fully mobile and has a built in utility that will display the bar code data and provide you with what symbology the code is. It is a low cost solution and ready out of the box with no need to be connected to a PC or wireless network.
